KickassTorrent Status, Alternatives and Proxies 2019

A list of KickassTorrents proxies, mirrors, and some of the popular and best alternatives.

Since its introduction back in 2008, Kickass Torrents has been one of the most popular and one of the best torrent sites, providing users with unlimited access to latest and greatest movies, music, anime, ebooks, TV series, software, apps, games and other categories.

People loved KAT because its interface and user experience  was more refined and clean than other torrent services at that time. It’s unique name stuck in the minds of the torrent users.

However, due to copyright infringement,  KAT was taken down in the year 2016. KAT was one of the biggest torrent websites out there before it shut down.  It is reported that Google removed many pages of KAT from its results because of copyright claims. In many regions of the world it was banned. Streaming services popped up. The traffic took a dip after that.

This was followed by the arrest of its founder, Artem Vaulin.  KAT official torrent site was subsequently banned by multiple countries and various internet service providers.

The old original Kickass domains were seized by the FBI, including the tracker, server and the original KAT database.

Kickass proxy and mirror web pages are available and can be used to access KickassTorrents.

I don’t encourage you to watch pirated content or use illegal copies of software. ISPs , Governments, authorities, and other organizations keep a close eye on torrent activity and can easily catch pirates unless they hide their online activity well.

KickassTorrents (KAT) Alternatives

If the above mirrors and proxies do not work, you can opt to use some alternatives for KickassTorrents. Some of the popular alternatives include:

1.The Pirate Bay

Founded in 2003 by Piratbyrån, is one of the best and famous torrent websites used worldwide. The veteran service has also had its fair share of domain seizures but has always bounced back in new domains. In my opinion it’s the best Kickass torrents alternative.  The interface is simple and you can see the trending torrents by clicking “Browse Torrents”

2. 1337x

This P2P torrent service has been around for a long time, though it’s not as large as other websites. It is usually preferred by individuals looking for older or more obscure torrents. It provides a variety of classic versions for different games, software and applications in a visual appealing interface.

3. TorrentHound

This is a lesser known but sufficient alternative. It provides its own torrent client to help protect users’ privacy. They also provide live stats of libraries.

4. Torlock

TorLock offers a simple UI with well organized sections. But its most impressive feature it that it only lists verified torrents.


Founded in 2008, RARBG was initially based in Bulgaria but has since moved to Amsterdam. It’s one of the best high-quality torrents with a good number of seeders. It also boasts a lively community of users who give updates on new torrents and other torrent-related news.

6. ExtraTorrent

In the absence of KickassTorrents, ExtraTorrent is one of the largest torrent indexing websites in the world. Although not as good as KAT, it’s an excellent alternative being home to ETTV and ETRG, famous for providing torrents for HD movies or TV shows in a variety of qualities including even Blu-ray.

7. Limetorrents

Limetorrents is a relatively new torrent website, but what makes it a suitable alternative is the fact that even after copyright infringement allegations, the site and its database rarely disappear.

8. Zooqle

For those who use torrents for movies and TV shows, Zooqle is a BitTorrent service that is dedicated to the entertainment sector. You’ll find pretty much every new and exclusive movie or TV show, since it boasts of over 3.5 million verified torrents in its database.

9. YTS

Regarded as the perfect imitation of YIFY, it strictly focuses on TV shows and movies. What makes it an alternative is that since its inception it has never experienced any down time and offers direct one-click download options for all of its content.

10. Torrentz2

It doesn’t host any torrent files or magnet links, but instead lists results from other torrent search engines like Kickass and displays the results on a single page. This makes it a Google-like search engine for torrents.
